Tab doesn't autocomplete filename if only root can access it, even if I'm using sudo.

Hello, consider the case where I'm trying to read the contents of /var/log/lighttpd/error.log, in order to do so I must use sudo.
I can use tab to auto complete most of the path except for the filename, because it's protected. At this point, I might believe that the file doesn't exist, because I use tab to query directory contents, and I'm using sudo so I disregard file permission issues.
Would it be possible for readline's autocomplete to integrate with sudo so that it autocompletes the filename of root-protected files?
Additionally I tried to use sudo su, but tab fails there for basic commands like man lighttpd.
